The Crohn's & Colitis Foundation collaborates with academic and industry researchers to help enroll patients with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis into clinical studies. The list below highlights our partners' current research studies. Please note that these partners have paid to have their trials posted below, and the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation does not endorse any particular study.

Microbes that live inside the human body provide a wide range of functions that the human body lacks. However, they are also linked to diseases, such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis (collectively called inflammatory bowel disease, or IBD). Recently, it has been shown that newborns carry bacteria transferred from their mothers. We would like to determine how and when maternal bacteria are transferred to a baby from mothers with and without IBD. This information can help us develop novel strategies to limit risk transmission from a mother to a baby.
